SCREEN PRINTING

WHAT IS SCREEN PRINTING?


Screen printing goes way back, like way back to 1907. The essential idea of screen printing is that a screen is created to stop the ink from being applied to the whole print area.  We do this by cutting out your design from the screen, which only allows the ink to push through this area.  There’s a whole lot of technical stuff that goes on to do this but we’re keeping it simple.

Anywho, once your screen is set up, we add the ink one color at a time and pull it over the mesh with a blade or squeegee.  This pushes the ink through the mesh and onto the garment.  We have to ‘flash cure’ each layer of ink before printing the next color.  Once all of your colors are printed, your shirts go through our tunnel dryer to ensure your print stays intact for as long as possible.
